My Name is Bruce to get Theatrical Release, Sequel

Bruce Campbell

Our friends over at Shock recently got to hear word directly from the mouth of Mike Richardson from Dark Horse Comic’s about the Bruce Campbell vehicle My Name Is Bruce.  In talking about the delays, it turns out they were all positive!  After the film was screened, the financiers enjoyed it so much they gave them more money to go back and shoot additional scenes to beef up the project for a theatrical release, which will happen this October.

It was also confirmed that a sequel, entitled My Name is Still Bruce, is currently being developed.  Good news.  The first flick follows the misadventures of Bruce Campbell (playing Bruce Campbell) as he is mistaken as his character from The Evil Dead, rather than an actor.  He’s then put against a real monster who he has to vanquish to help save a small town.  Undoubtedly lots of laughs and mishaps follow.

To any Campbell fan, this is great news.  I know that because I’m a Campbell fan.  Go figure.  The movie sounds like a lot of self-referential fun that will probably rock ass.  Hopefully it appeals to a larger audience as well and not just us genre kids.  Everyone out there should do themselves a favor and watch The Evil Dead II to get a taste for Campbell, if you don’t already recognize him from his cameos in each of the three Spider-Man movies.  He was the best part of that turd they call Spider-Man 3, though that’s a bit like saying syphilis is the best STD.  But BC is definitely cooler than syphilis.  Definitely.
